Sara's Grandfather's 1915 Model T

Post by johnandsara » Thu Dec 19, 2019 5:49 pm

It has been a while since we have been on the from and much has happened in 2019.
Lizzie got her first award in the Historical Preservation Original Features (HPOF) classification, at the April AACA Southern Nationals, in Charlotte.
The July/August issue of "Antique Automobile" magazine, featured a six page story and the back cover.
We took her to Hershey in October and she got so much attention, she blushed.
In November we were notified by the AACA that she was nominated for a National Award.
Last week, we were notified that Lizzie is the recipient of a National Award to be presented in Philadelphia in February.

It has been an amazing Journey with Lizzie.

Congratulations! I spent a lot of time looking over the T at Charlotte. I hope you will be in Philly to personally receive the award. I'm one of the guys who will he handing out the trophies as you come down off the stage there after you get your picture taken with the President. It'll be an honor to shake your hand!
